thank you & welcome!

Thank you!

For us, Valentine’s Day came a few days early this year.  Our awesome readers’ outpouring of love helped FFF win Best Italy Travel Blog from Italy Magazine! The announcement was made yesterday, and it took us a full day to get over our shock. While few things make us speechless (have you seen the length of our posts?), we took a bit of time to quietly reflect on what an incredible group our little community here has grown to be.

If you’re a FFF-regular, please know that your support of our tiny project means the world to us, and from here ’til Friday (and every day after!) we’ll be sending nothing but warm hearts your way.

If you’re new to FFF, welcome! We hope you’ll stay awhile to explore some of the hidden treasures that dot these pages. If you ever have a request on a place to visit or topic to cover, just leave  a quick comment and we’ll add it to our always-growing list of free things to do around the city.

Again, grazie infinite.
